THE SIOBHAN MILLER BAND
Having been robbed of many gigs during the Covid pandemic, it is now time to play catch up and re-connect you with those wonderful musicians we had lined up to play for us, last year. Rescheduled from March 2020, we are delighted to finally introduce you to one of Scotland's finest singers and her band: https://www.siobhanmiller.com/ A richly celebrated Scottish folk singer and songwriter, Siobhan Miller’s soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song has won her the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Scots Singer of the Year, an unprecedented four times (2020, 2017, 2013, 2011).
In 2008, early on in her music career, she won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, alongside Jeana Leslie – Siobhan is also a former member of Folk group Salt House. Following her Scots Trad. Music Awards nominated debut album, "Flight of Time", her hotly-anticipated follow-up, "Strata" was released in February 2017 to wide critical acclaim. Siobhan won the BBC Radio 2 Folk for Best Traditional Track in 2018 for the song "Banks of Newfoundland" from that album.
Her award-winning style has been honed through collaborations and studies with many of Scotland’s top musicians. As a solo performer, she has taken Scottish music all over the World and recently completed a tour of the U.S. Nationwide television appearances, performances for royalty and heads of state, appearances on the US/UK TV drama Outlander, and outings at many of the UK’s major Folk festivals (including Wickham 2019), illustrate just why she has been lauded as “the finest young interpreter of Scots traditional song” (Scotland on Sunday).
Siobhan will be performing old favourites and brand new songs from her latest album "Mercury" with her band consisting of
Euan Burton (double bass), Innes White (guitar), John Lowrie (keys) and Louis Abbot (drums).
Here is Siobhan's sublime version of Robbie Burns' "Green Grow The Rashes, O"
